The female students who have worked for a baseball team as a manager also play an important role at the opening ceremony.
At the ceremony, two managers announce their team and introduce it while the teammates make the entrance march .
One of the managers is Takahashi Hazuki (17), a high school senior with a hearing-aid on both ears.
Takahashi-san went on to the Tateoka High School from the Prefecture Yamagata School for the Deaf. She was invited by a friend and became a manager of the baseball team.
